Notes / Commercial Description:
This is a beer that will make you rethink your definition of beer. It doesn’t taste like any beer you’ve ever had, yet it doesn’t taste like anything else either. Pushing the limits of brewing is what makes this job so much fun. Malted barley, wild yeast, hand picked Muscat Grapes, and French oak wine barrels are just a few of the things that wen into crafting this beer. Breathe deep, take a long sip, and enjoy the creation in your hand.

375 mL bottle picked up on site at CL.

Appearance is a light golden color with cloudiness and some bubbles. Aroma has a lot going on; white grapes, yeast, lemon, tart and an overall funk. Taking a sip of CdC, it tastes like apple, lemon, pear, tart, and musty too. MF has a champagne characteristic to it and there are some bubbles going on, very neat. All in all, this is a very nice wild ale/ sour from Captain Lawrence. I am just kicking myself that I never made it to any of the CdC releases prior to 2010.
